Fear the Walking Dead Season 2 Poster Delivers a Dire Warning
There is a Cabin Fever remake in theaters and available on VOD as we speak. But that reboot isn't the only thing aping Eli Roth's cherished horror classic. The new poster for Fear the Walking Dead blatantly rips off the original Cabin Fever poster. Only it's moved from the deep, dark woods to the high seas, giving us clouds instead of trees, menacing in the shape of a skull.
Fear the Walking Dead is set to return with all new episode in just a few weeks, when Season 2 kicks off April 10. And this year's tagline is 'No Safe Harbor'. The premiere episode will pick right back up where we left off, with Madison (Kim Dickens), Travis (Cliff Curtis) and their extended family taking temporary shelter in Strand's gated estate overlooking the Pacific Ocean. With Los Angeles in the midst of a zombie meltdown, the El Sereno survivors are ready to set sail on Starnd's yacht Abigail, which is moored offshore.
The previous trailers showed Madison (Kim Dickens) running on the beach carrying supplies, which could indicate that she's actually trying to escape from the massive yacht. We also get to see a number of zombies emerging from the sea, along with a group of waterlogged walkers, which likely means their swimming skills aren't so good. This season will also introduce new cast members such as Dougray Scott, Daniel Zovatto, Arturo del Puerto and Veronica Diaz.
Fear the Walking Dead will air its second season of 15 episodes in two parts, beginning with the first of seven episodes on Sunday, April 10th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. The remaining eight episodes will air later in 2016. The series, which delivered the highest-rated first season of any series in cable history among total viewers and all key demos in live+3 ratings, is executive produced by showrunner Dave Erickson, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert and stars Kim Dickens as Madison, Cliff Curtis as Travis, Cliff Curtis as Nick, Alycia Debnam Carey as Alicia, Rubén Blades as Daniel, Mercedes Masöhn as Ofelia, Lorenzo James Henrie as Chris and Colman Domingo as Strand.
The series began production on season two last month in the Baja peninsula in Mexico at Baja Studios, home to some of the greatest ocean-set films in recent years. Season one left off with Madison, Travis and their extended family taking temporary shelter in Strand's gated estate overlooking the Pacific Ocean. As civil unrest continues to grow and the dead take over Los Angeles, Strand prepares to escape to "Abigail," his large yacht moored offshore. For those who haven't caught up with the series yet, the complete first season of Fear the Walking Dead will be available to stream exclusively on Hulu. Hulu subscribers can catch up on all episodes of the series through Hulu's No Commercials and Limited Commercials plans ahead of the second season premiere on AMC.
Immediately following Fear the Walking Dead on Sundays at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT will be Talking Dead, hosted by Chris Hardwick, which will continue its tradition of welcoming cast, producers and celebrity guests to the couch to talk about the newest episode of Fear. Do you think the El Sereno survivors of Fear the Walking Dead will find a safe place to call home this season? Check out the first poster, and stay tuned for more on Fear the Walking Dead.
